CLT 207 - Clinical Chemistry & Serology

Designed to cover principles, analytical methods, and clinical significance of clinical chemistry as performed in the medical laboratory, including theoretical principles of serological and molecular methodologies.  The relationship of physiochemical of body function in health and disease including the renal, liver, digestive, and respiratory systems.  Emphasis on those clinical tests which evaluate the function of these systems related to metabolism, protein synthesis, pH, blood gases, electrolyte balance, enzymes, and hormones.
